I’m sure you have heard the term carbon footprint, well fashion has its own carbon footprint.

So what exactly is a carbon footprint?

Your carbon footprint is the sum of all emissions of CO2 (carbon dioxide), which were induced by your activities in a given time frame.” according to Time for Change.

About 10% of carbon dioxide from global production is from clothing, per year. That’s over 3 times more than Australia’s total carbon dioxide levels including both man-made and natural emissions.
